And with its dynamic four seasons, Pennsylvania always offers something new to be discovered any time you visit. From skiing, kayaking, biking, hiking or fishing, there are endless attractions and activities travelers and their canine companions can partake in all year round.

From lux cabins on the lake and sprawling game rooms to rustic cabins nestled amongst the forest, there’s a cabin for every kind of traveler, and many are eager to welcome your four-legged friends too.
